It’s bigger than football, baseball and basketball combined. It’s the fastest growing outdoor activity in the U.S. fascinating over 51 million Americans. It is (drumroll) bird watching. Fortunately we live in an area that’s home to thousands of our fine feathered friends. The parks along the East Bay Shore and the refuge on Lake Merritt are particularly rich in migrating bird life.
But to actually learn the kind of avian details that make bird watching so addictive start by taking the “Winter Hawks, Falcons and Eagles” class this Sunday, December 13 from 9-4 at Point Reyes. If you’re not a member of the National Seashore Association the price is $62.64. Bring your own binoculars.
